We would listen together to the most pleasant melodies and I would tell them about the instruments which make the music. Then, amazed with the beauty of music, they themselves would ask me to teach them the mystery of those little black dots written on five lines. Because these little black dots are only tools for the musical production. The experience of beauty must come first." Rubem Alves
